the other side since you're talking about 2008. marco rubio and paul ryan both spoke at this dinner and they were -- these were speeches where they're trying to define themselves as who they are. both probably going to run in 2016. how would a rubio/ryan stack up against a hillary clinton? in a sense it sort of feels like 2008 reversed, right, except for experience would come on the democratic side with hillary and the youth and this sort of idealism might perhaps come from a rubio or ryan on the republican side? >> well, if i look at that poll you were referring to, hillary clinton is the overwhelming favorite among young people, especially young women. young people and young women, clearly they're going to help determine future elections. look, i think paul ryan and marco rubio, are trying to rebrand themselves and recast the republican party as a party of diversity and, perhaps, big ideas and a larger goalpost. i want to also say this because i have to say this as vice chair of the party. as you know, the democratic party has a large and broad base, including vice president biden

. when marco rubio was asked about the age of a planet in a recent interview, he dodged it saying i'm not a scientist, man. now televangelist pat robertson of all people is weighing in but not in a way you might expect. we're going to have pat robison back. pat robertson saying the earth is very, very old. we should believe the artifacts and the paleontology. >>> final a real about face for the guy who had the romney campaign logo tattooed on his face before the election in exchange for a $5,000 payment. when romney lost, he said he was keeping the tattoo anyway. then he got caught wind of romney saying the president won the re-election by giving gifts to minority voters. now he says, quote, it stands not only for a losing campaign but for a sore loser. there's no dignity in blaming somebody else for buying votes and paying off people. i can't get behind that or stay behind that. well, a tattoo removal chain offered to remove the tattoo for free and hartsburg is taking them up on it. they are predicting it will take seven to ten laser removal sessions to get rid of the whole thing.

billion dollars among friends? anyway, last month republican senator marco rubio punted on the question of how old the earth is, calling it a great mystery. it's not a mystery it's what the potential presidential candidate for 2016 was playing to the large number of evangelicals who believe in the literal truth of the bible. fast forward to yesterday when rubio was given a retake on that pop question by politico's mike all allen. >> there is no scientific debate on the age of the earth. it's established pretty definitively. at least 4.5 billion years old. i was referring to a these logical debate, which is a pretty healthy debate. >> rubio went on to say americans should teach children science but they also have the right to teach them religion. that's interesting. senator, you can't teach religion in public schools. by the way, think about it, what religion would you teach in public schools? would you want to decide that? this is america. we don't let frequent heartburn come between us and what we love. so if you're one of them people who gets heartburn and then treats day after day..

likely not presently have in the united states senate pat tomby, rand paul, mike lee, marco rubio, jeff flake, ron johnson, ted cruz. we had not have a republican establishment that worries that conservatives might actually primary them. de menthe also had backed candidates who went on to lose their general elections. richard mourdock in indiana, christine o'donnell in delaware, ken buck out in colorado. bob, i'm going to back to this again. when the chief ramrod of the rift wing senate candidates leaves the post, who would replace him? how is this good news for the right? >> look, i'm not saying whether it's good news or bad news, i'm tell you what i think his calculation is. his calculation is he can be more of a free agent. i think he will get very involved in primaries, he will push hard right issues. i wish him well because the candidates e succeeded in nominating have quite often lost winnable seats. the notion for example that ted cruz -- the republicans were going to win that seat and it was going to be a conservative republican, but there are at least five senate seats and prob

american. >> reporter: in addition to paul ryan, marco rubio appeared in that same washington event. both are thinking about a possible run for the presidency in 2016. rubio said republicans also have to reshape their message to middle class americans and those who want to enter the middle class. >> major garrett, thank you. >>> officials say another crisis is looming, but it's physical not fiscal. flu season is off to an early and strong start. the south is already hard hit by this year's strain. three school systems in tennessee have closed the rest of the week because so many students and teachers are sick. with us now, past president of the national foundation for infectious diseases. doctor, good morning. >> good morning. >> it's early, it's serious and it's caused by a virus that causes more serious illness. so it's not too late to get vaccinated. vaccine is our best prevention of influenza. we want to prevent pneumonia, hospitalization and, of course, deaths. >> how effective do you think this year's vaccine is? >> at the moment we know from analyzing the viruses we've already reco

of moving in that direction here? we've seen marco rubio make some comments. we've seen even paul ryan as well. do we see a shift that's happening here that's a little more immigrant friendly. >> i think losing for a second time and getting a low number of hispanics really stunk. it caused a wake-up call that we haven't seen before, and i think there's this realization that the immigration issue, though not the priority issue for hispanics, is an emotional issue and that we are losing hispanics and not able to talk to hispanics about other issues like the economy because, you know, because of the rhetoric, because of the tone issues like and the policy on lishz line immigration. i think there is a realization. now, you know, suzanne, this is washington. there's a huge difference between a realization and legislation. we'll just have to see what happens, and we're going to have to see what kind of skin in the game president obama and the democrats have come up with. this is going to have to be a bipartisan solution. >> all right. you mentioned mitt romney in his grave. let's see if he b
